      Description

      This is a follow-up to MDLQA-1413 and MDL-30376. The lack of a specific 'read' capability for glossary entries complicates access control for RSS feeds. This patch adds a new capability for viewing glossary entries.

      Patch against current master: https://github.com/mackensen/moodle/compare/master...MDL-30482. The new capability is mod/glossary:read (following the convention of mod/glossary:write) and is based on mod/data:readentry.
